You can select either the 0.4 or the 0.8 and manually change the line width.You may have to experiment a bit to make sure you do not over extrude or under extrude. Layer heights will work just the same though. :)

You will mostly be better off selecting the AA0.4 as this will give you more profiles vs using a 0.8 as a starting point.  When you made the changes to the priofile, like line width around 0,55 - 0,6  and other stuff you need, safe as a new profile, call it something with 0.6 in the name and next time you good to go.

I'm currently testing a Solex Hardcore 0.6 as well. Not done yet, but, at least for a 0.3 layer width, you'll want to print slower and hotter with PLA. The standard 200°C and 70mm/s of the generic profile results in underextrusion. I'm currently testing at 220°C and around 50mm/s. Still not that good, maybe 215°C would make the PLA less viscous.
